IPL 2019 | Twitter Reacts to Eventful Clash Between Royals & Kings XI

R Ashwin leads his team after Kings XI Punjab's victory over RR (IPLT20)

Kings XI Punjab finally managed to break their duck at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium against Rajasthan Royals as they sealed a 14-run victory on Monday. But the game is likely to be remembered for more than just that, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Jos Buttler involved in a massive controversy.

Earlier in the day, Chris Gayle got going with the bat and went on to score a fine half-century. His innings and Sarfaraz Khan’s cameo helped the visitors post a competitive 185 runs on the board.

Rajasthan Royals got off to a flying start, with Jos Buttler doing a bulk of the damage. But just as he was about to take the game away from the visitors, Ashwin’s effort to Mankad him brought about his downfall, but it raised a massive debate.


Eventually, that proved to be the turned point of the game as RR’s run-chase fell wayward and ended up managing just 170 on the board.
